President Donald Trump Sunday condemned a "mindless CHEMICAL attack" in Syria that killed women and children, called Syrian President Bashar Assad an "animal" and said there would be a "big price to pay" for resorting to outlawed weapons of mass destruction.Hours later, Syria's state-run news agency reported a missile attack early Monday at an air base in Syria's Homs province and labeled it a "likely" U.S. aggression. Trump has signaled to his advisers that, ideally, he wants all troops out within six months.Trump was briefed about the attack by his chief of staff, John Kelly, officials said. Trump's homeland security adviser, Thomas Bossert, noted the timing of the suspected chemical attack -- almost a year to the day of the U.S. missile strikes.Vice President Mike Pence on Sunday deemed it a "likely chemical attack" and reiterated Trump's threat that consequences would be coming for those responsible.Trump's decision to single out Russian President Vladimir Putin in a tweet for supporting Assad appeared noteworthy because Trump long has been reluctant to personally criticize the Russian leader.
